Beautiful truck, hope you're able to hold to it for a while. Makes me wish we had rust free older trucks up here.

Thanks guys!!

Just cut all the materials for rock sliders at work.. beefy stuff.
Doing it all really just for the "Squeeze" at strawberry pass. Going up there this weekend and i know i am going to have to literally drop my rocker onto the rock and drag over it so its either i do sliders or i don't take my truck.

Hoping to get a good bit done on them tonight, and finish tomorrow night..

Oh, and I have 3 more military take-off's on their way from Trail worthy fab!

Just ordered 3 more 37" Goodyear Military OZ tires, they will be at the shop next week and i will be using a buddies tire machine and mounting them that day, on a set of 16.5" rims my boss has out back. They just happen to be the exact same rims i have on now lol

Fab'd some rock sliders up!!

2x3 .250 Rect. main tubes
2x2 .250 supports from main slider tube to plated frame
1.5 .120 Round tube helping keep the rocks away






Oh and i found a use for a chevy at last!


Doubles as a perfect step. Tested it out and it indeed makes it way easier for me to hop in. Success!

Going to Strawberry pass this weekend. It's a 14 mile long trail and goes up to 8,600 feet... it was not passable 2 weekends ago from heavy snow but there should be the perfect amount of snow making the trail a little harder. what i'm hoping for anyways
Oh, and i built these sliders specifically for one obstace on this trail, called the squeeze... i'll be sure to get pics..

Painted rock was.. interesting.
This was the best line after a while of checking out the clusterfawk of body destroyers.




Ahh, the squeeze. The obstacle i didnt even know if i could possibly fit through.
Still not sure if i technically fit through it. It was epic.

After a while of perfecting my approach angle. If i was a half inch wider I'd be screwed.





All the pictures
http://s283.photobucket.com/albums/k...august%202011/

Damage:
Dented headlight door, inch of paint missing from fender
The new transfer case bushings cracked to shit and had to drive home with the transfer case moving an inch back and forth, not cool. Now i have to pull the damn thing to replace those bushings up in there. I wouldn't think 1 year old bushings would crack to shit so fast.
Truck won't idle any more.
Idle fluctuations when throttle held steady.

And now the worst of all.
Shit tons of blowby coming out of the valve cover vent and the distributor hole where it goes into the intake.
This might get shitty really fast.

But the trip couldn't of been amazing-er

I'm pretty sure there have been thousands of back-halved, doved, buggied, or just plain beat-to-shit trucks that have started with "just an inch of paint" like yours. Mark my words, buddy...

haha i see what you guys are saying but no way i will let this truck get beat up much. Well, put it this way, if i dent a fender in i will go buy a new fender strip/por-15 the backside and do bodywork paint on the front side just like the original. It'll never look like a beaten truck.
Way too many hours of my life into the truck to let it look sad

Very nice! Dude, do you ever sleep? Where do you find the time between this truck and your race truck? I envy your trucks and the time you have to do it! Keep up the good work!

THanks man.
Nope no sleep
I work full time at a welding shop, along with part time nights making pizza, leaving only weekends (during day) for me to work on the trucks. I don't sleep much on the weekends... i'll work on the trucks to 3 in the morning whenever i have something quiet to do (not trying to piss of the neighbors too much).
And now i am about to start full time college.

Smoothed out would probably be pretty cool but i'll probably leave it as is. I like the look of clean welds over perfectly smoothed out corners.


I haven't worked on the highboy yet. Having too much fun with the race truck right now.

Thanks Mike!

To sum up the front suspension and price list..
-J-beams (basically a ibeam welded to a radius arm)... bent for camber adjustment, full plated, and radius arms on uniballs twice as long as stock... SCORED them for $200 never used. 4130 plated and TIG'd
-autofab beam pivots -donated
-16x2.5" resi race-runner coilovers, got from a buddy for $400 shipped, then coils from buddies.
-2x4" Racerunner hydraulic bumps, $250 from the classifieds
-Fully swinger steering/double sheared pitman and knuckles, made by me, 250 in parts (you have to move the power steering box to front of frame as well). Ruff stuff heims and 1.5x.250 DOM tube used.
-limit straps... 10 bucks from a swap meet
I think that's it. So like $1,100 which is about as cheap as it gets. It's all about knowing people and checking classifieds every day.


Anyways. Something about a Cummins?

Love the truck, I have a soft spot for bumps even though Ive only owned dents. I remember my "run the lp closed knuckle 44 till it breaks" phase, lasted about 7 minutes.

Oh and the race truck is

The 390 that was in it Is now being parted out. Scrapping the block, selling the rotating assembly, and everything else gas related that my race truck can't use.

The 428 that I was going to build thats at the machine shop right now (should be picking it up tomorrow) i am selling. I'm $400 into it now ($100 purchase plus $300 machining) Hoping to get over a grand for it.


Anyone need ford FE stuff? Or a 428???

thanks. I "wheel" very "softly". I know lots of people that have the parts (and lack of power) to just stand on the gas and romp over stuff but i'll be in the back letting granny gear do its thing. I'm the slowest there is thats for sure, but i also get a fullsize through some decent stuff. I think the 44LP has a chance with me... then again, i have 37" military take offs to go on, and a 1200lb 6bt torque monster to sit on top of it
